Flash Fire Protection for combat uniform
GORE® PYRAD® Fabric Technology
Flame retardant (FR) combat uniforms comprise a field jacket and trousers and are designed to be worn over a base layer or a combat shirt. These garments utilize flame retardant GORE® PYRAD® Fabric Technology, which protects the soldier from flash fire in combat situations.
In both field and laboratory tests, the GORE® PYRAD® combat uniform has proven to be significantly more durable than a conventional FR or a non-FR field uniform within a similar weight class.
Special combat forces in Italy, France and Germany use GORE® PYRAD® Fabric Technology.
